What I’m looking, studying..rather than working

Don’t tell me this hasn’t took place to you.

You have stuff to do.  Deadlines.  Work a person will pay you for if you simply, you realize, do it.

So you pour a cup of coffee and sit down on the pc.

But then, dang, the Internet takes place.

Here’s a piece of what were given me distracted these days.

Air New Zealand posted time-lapse video photos of its first new home A320 being constructed and painted with all black livery.

The paint task has something to do with the All Blacks rugby team, so of path I needed to visit that website after which the Small Blacks website online as well.

As long as I become visiting the Air New Zealand web site, I had to check in on what that wild and loopy furry creature, Rico, become up to. I discovered this reel of bloopers.

A brief check of e-mail and Twitter sent me off in new instructions.

Florida’s Dali Museum become establishing in its snazzy new constructing in St. Petersburg, FL. And as a person who first came upon that museum series, by using accident, while it shared area with a factory in Cleveland, Ohio, I of path had to visit.

While there, I came throughout this clip of Salvador Dali as a guest on the antique TV show, What’s My Line?

Then, of direction, it became time to test e mail and Twitter and seize up on my RSS feed.

A blog submit by means of the oldsters at the  Smithsonian Air and Space Museum – five Cool Things at the Udvar-Hazy Center You May Have Missed – stuck my eye due to the fact the Udvar-Hazy Center is just down the street Dulles International Airport.

And then I virtually got snarled in the net. A comment on the museum weblog publish noted Anita, “the spider from Skylab.”  I didn’t recognize about Anita so needed to observe that thread.

It turns out that Anita and a accomplice spider, Arabella, have been part of an experiment flown on Skylab, a area station launched in May 1973.

According the Smithsonian website:

Scientists and college students interested in the increase, development, behavior, and edition of organisms in weightlessness furnished a number of biology experiments for flight in the orbital research laboratory. A commonplace Cross spider, “Anita” participated in an internet formation test recommended with the aid of a high school student.

Astronauts Alan Bean, Jack Lousma, and Owen Garriott completed the scientific research in area, stated the results, and back this specimen on the quit of their task. NASA then sent Anita, a companion spider “Arabella,” and the test equipment to the Museum.
